  THE  PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM-

  Section 1. Legislative intent. The legislature finds that, to  promote
the  safety  and  well-being of all New Yorkers who live in or visit New
York city, there is a need to have fuel efficient, low emission and zero
emission options available for taxis. The current regulations that apply
to taxi vehicles has resulted in the selection  of  vehicles  that  have
high  fuel  usage and emissions. This policy must be changed to add more
fuel-efficient and lower emission choices.

is amended by adding two new subdivisions dd and ee to read as follows:

VEHICLES OR ELECTRIC VEHICLES.
